10) ‘Gothika’ (2003): After the career peak of ‘Monster’s Ball’ (2001), ‘Die Another Day (2002), and X2: X-Men United (2002), Berry stumbled with this modest hit thriller which earned mostly negative reviews.
9) ‘Frankie and Alice’ (2010): Berry’s performance as a woman with split personalities was actually one of her better reviewed roles. Still, no one went to see her Golden Globe nominated performance. The movie earned a shocking awful $10,670 at the box office.
8) ‘X-Men: The Last Stand’ (2006): Sure, this third X-Men film made a lot of money, but the movie (and Berry’s performance as Storm) was frequently slammed as the worst in the series and a far cry from its comic book origins.
7) ‘Perfect Strangers’ (2007): A pairing alongside A-lister Bruce Willis in a sexually charged thriller should have provided fireworks. But instead this forgettable flick came and went through theaters.
6) ‘Race to the Sun’ (1996): This forgettable ‘Cool Runnings’ rip-off co-stars Jim Belushi of all people and comes during a phase of Berry’s career where it seemed like nearly all her roles just required her to be nothing more than a bland pretty girl.
5) ‘Cloud Atlas’ (2012): With a big co-star (Tom Hanks) and an even bigger budget, this ambitious sci-fi epic was poised to be Berry’s big comeback. But unfortunately most audiences found it incomprehensible.
4) ‘Dark Tide’ (2012): Don’t remember this shark movie hitting theaters? Yeah, neither do we. Berry did get a new man (co-star Oliver Martinez) out of this debacle, but not much else.
3) ‘Movie 43’ (2013): Berry is just one of several recognizable faces in this all-star train wreck of a comedy. Crude and reportedly painfully unfunny, this flop is already being called one of the worst ever made.
2) ‘B*A*P*S’ (1997): This ‘comedy’ about “black American princesses” which Roger Ebert called “jaw-droppingly bad” was viewed as racially insensitive in the extreme and may have prematurely railroaded director Robert Townsend’s career.
1) ‘Catwoman’ (2004): The one, the only…arguably the biggest flop of Berry’s career, this big-budget comic book adaptation failed to live up to its considerable hype and crashed and burned at the box office. Still, Berry proved she’s a good sport by accepting her worst actress Razzie award in person.

Oscar winner Halle Berry hits theaters again this weekend with the surprisingly well-reviewed thriller The Call.
Despite its low budget and widely derided trailer, the New York Times has called the movie “effectively creepy” and the Hollywood Reporter hails it as “a tense, extreme-jeopardy thriller that delivers the intended goods.”
These notices are a real reversal of fortune for the ageless sex symbol, who has seen more of her fair share of misses when it comes to the movies.
And even though The Call may perform better than her infamous film from earlier this year, Movie 43, which some have called one of the worst films of all time, it’s unlikely to be setting any box office records.
But what is Halle Berry’s worst movie?
